“Although the first specimen discovered had single-rooted teeth (unusual for ceratopsians), later fossils had double-rooted teeth. This is evidence that the teeth became double-rooted with age.”
– Cabot Finch
Zuniceratops is a ceratopsian dinosaur from the Turonian stage of the Cretaceous. It was one of the earliest known ceratopsians providing a link in the history of the group of dinosaurs.
This dinosaur is an example of the evolutionary transition between early ceratopsians and the later, larger ceratopsids that had very large horns and frills. This supports the theory that the lineage of ceratopsian dinosaurs may have been North American in origin.
Zuniceratops was discovered in 1996 in New Mexico by an eight year old boy named Christopher Wolfe and named in 1998.
